Hey guys,

quick question:

I need to drive the Ultimaker 2 from city A to city B on a regular basis.

Do I need to secure some parts of the UM 2 with zipties like when it was shipped or something? How do you generally move the UM2 around?

Greetings

    Hi and welcome to the forum.

    From my experience i'd say just handle it with care. It's better if you put it back in the package used when delivered, it will be secured that way.

    We can assume that you will not bang it around like transporters do so you're pretty safe to transport it like that.

    I place mine on a seat which absorbs most of the shocks and cradles it in place. I also remove the filament as the filament and the spool holder makes it unbalanced and more likely to fall over. Especially if a full spool.

    Its funny how we usually put the seat belt on things we care about :).

    I usually secure it on the rear seat with the belt in lock mode. I used 1 or 2 shoe boxes that I cut in half to secure the corners a little more against impacts.

    Like mentioned:

    - remove the filament

    - filament holder

    - remove the sd card if you dont want to lose it by accident.

    I normally put mine in the front seat with the seat belt. That way i can reach across and hold it on sharp corners :)

    Agree with the above and remember to level the bed again after arrival just in case.
